The issue in GetHuman714866's own words
I saw an ad on craigslist about a vehicle that i wanted to purchase. When i contacted the owner, they told me that they wre in another state, but they were able to send the vehicle over through ebay. They told me they were part of a program with ebay where they could get the vehicle shipped over to me. To do so though i would have to buy an ebay gift card of $*** and then send them the pictures so that they could verify everything was okay. I wrnt and bought the gift card as instructed. (I have all of the original receipts proving my purchase of the receipt, as well as the gift card itself with the code and everything.) After i did so, an email was sent to me that seemed like a legit ebay company email. The email was teling me about how they were going to help me with the transaction. After i sent them my information they sent me another email stating they needed another payment to cover the insurance of the vehicle. I was very suspicious about the whole thing, and as i went to investigate online if there were other situations like this i found out to my surprise that there are alot of people who try and con people and trick them into giving them money in exchange for a fake vehicle. Me and my wife were very uspet and furious with the indivisuals. After seeing that we tried and see if the gift card had any funds left, but to our despair the cars was all emptied out. I hope there is something that can be done about the incident that occured to me and my wife. I have proof of the emails that were sent to me, the texts as well, and the original receipt and gift card i bought for the transaction that was never done. I would very grateful if there was anything that could be done to get my money back. We were doing all of this just to get a vehicle to be able to move around for work. Please let me know as soon as you can thank you. My number is. **********.
